Paternity

St. Augustine Paternity Attorneys

When a child is born outside of marriage paternity is legally established through a legal action by either parent. The father may acknowledge paternity or a DNA test can be performed. A birth certificate alone does not legally establish paternity. The Court must also make determinations regarding child support, parental responsibility, and time-sharing. The issues involved in a paternity case are often complicated, call us at (904) 829-3035 to discuss your case.
